A book designed and created by me last year. The books positive failure written by Alastair Arnott looks into our current education system and how it condemns student for failing and puts pressure on them to succeed. He writes about how failure can be a good thing and we need in order to improve ourselves and out skills. Something I certainly agree with, the whole art industry being a thing of trial and error.
The idea behind the cover was to present this a stamped ‘F’ that we associate with failing an exam or paper. It went through a couple of prototypes but we eventually decided on this. The green then connects to our association of success and being correct.
